Webinar: Saving Antibiotics: A Clinical Perspective on Antibiotic Overuse in Agriculture

May 16, 2013

Time: 1-2pm ET / 10-11am PT
Register Here

Webinar details:

Antibiotic resistance is increasing across the country. Yet, antibiotics continue to be used prolifically in food animal agriculture. Doctors, nurses, and other clinicians have a powerful voice to provide in urging more prudent antibiotic use in agriculture. Learn and discuss the role the clinical community can play in protecting antibiotics.  

Dr. Gail Hansen, Senior Officer, Pew Campaign on Human Health and Industrial Farming, will explain the environmental and health risks to antibiotics overuse in animal agriculture, and describe the policy landscape. Dr. Tom Newman, Professor of Epidemiology and Biostatistics and Pediatrics at University of California-San Francisco Medical Center and National Board member of Physicians for Social Responsibility, will speak about how Clinicians can become more involved in antibiotics advocacy in their practice and communities, and with their patients.
